Kate Winslet is emotional about Mare of Easttown coming to an end. The popular HBO miniseries apparently even found a fan in First Lady Jill Biden, writes Maureen Dowd for The New York Times.

Winslet is overwhelmed by how audiences responded to her character, how they fell “in love with this wildly flawed, messy, broken, fragmented, difficult woman.”

Winslet said she prepared more for Mare of Easttown than any other role in her life. Winslet, a vegetarian, confessed there was no meat and no onions in the hoagies consumed in the show.

“I felt really, really bad because I know onions are a very important part of a hoagie,” she said.

Then there’s that Delco accent.

Winslet had to change the way the muscles in her face moved to emulate the Delco dialect.

“Frankly, I thought, ‘Delaware County, oh, it’ll be fine. The vowel sounds a little bit different, but it’ll be fine.’ Honestly, it was just so hard.”
